    Anyone recommend any sites here?
    Not worried about too many facilities but as we only have cycles would like places accesable within reasonable distance?
    The other option is somewhere like Southwold?

    Hi

    there is a small site just north of Thetford on the left hand side of the A1075 near the village of Hockham, basic facilities but a great location ..

    see Google Map ,

    The site you have marked Jim, is now the CCC site "Thetford Forest". I believe it is run as a franchise. Stayed there once early in 2008: good site, but full CCC facilities (and price)!

    We are staying on a site at Brandon, Suffolk (wardens at present as owner in hospital).

    Water, dump point and electric. Gorgeous surroundings with plenty of wildlife including deer walking through and barking in the night, close to shops and plenty of cycle rides in Thetford forest. Good walks on property down to river and near Hereward Way.

    CL site and costs £7.00/night inclusive of electric.

    PM if you would like to visit or for more info.

    camping in Thetford & Southwold

    We have stayed at the Thetford forest site, you can cycle locally but the site is away from the main forest area, there is a site in Southwold near the harbour end , not the best site we have stayed at , but it is very convenient for cycling around Southwold area.

    For Southwold - try the Caravan Club CL [Priory Farm] at Darsham just off the A12 north of Yoxford.

    Easy biking into Southwold on back roads or forest tracks - either over bailey bridge or foot ferry at Walberswick.

    We have used it twice in the past 6 months - all hardstanding, electric, very quiet {actually it may be adults only thinking about why it was so quiet!!] Bike hire and shop on site.
